Lyme Regis - Sloping garden designed by Hugo Bugg
This garden in Lyme Regis was designed by Hugo Bugg, the youngest Gold Medal winner at RHS Chelsea. A great design that presented major landscaping challenges to overcome including the removal and levelling of a large slope, narrow access, drainage as there were many underground spring and weather conditions - the garden was built in winter and the large movement of bulk materials including, topsoil, subsoil and concrete.
Using specialist vehicles and equipment that could cope with the terrain, the groundwork crew excelled under the direction of Jerry, one of our team leaders, in the safe movement of hundreds of tonnes of materials.
The finished garden demonstrated how it is possible to transform an ordinary large sloping garden into a functional, cohesive space for seating, growing produce and attracting wildlife.
The design was striking and demonstrated the difference that good garden design can make, not only to the landscape but the look and feel of the house by rooting it in its surroundings creating a perfect partnership between house and garden.
